Sweet Potato Cookie Butter (No churn) Ice Cream Sandwiches

I have explained before that I get baking recipes and inspiration from everywhere. Usually, most of my ideas come to me in my dreams when my mind is free to roam in candyland. During this season, the shorter days and longer nights give me more time for more enticing inceptions. I also get concepts from remixing other recipes that I have or others have already created.

A few weeks ago, I was having a conversation via social media about fall recipes. One of my social media friends was discussing these popular pumpkin cheesecake cookies. She, being a fan of these favored fall cookies, suggested that they might taste better if they were sweet potato based. Although I had heard of these cookies before, I had never actually tried them. That was enough incentive for me to get started on experimenting on a new autumn treat.

I started out by buying and trying the original pumpkin cheesecake cookies. The cookies were pretty satisfying. They were soft and filled with notes of pumpkin and spices. The cookies had morsels of white chocolate that represented the cheesecake flavor. After a few cookies, I knew exactly how I was going to make my version even better tasting. Not only was going to make some delicious sweet potato cookies, but I would accompany these cookies with some ice cream. This was not going to be an ordinary ice cream but an extraordinary sweet potato ice cream filled with cream cookie butter and cinnamon cookie bits.

The sweet potato cheesecake cookies and sweet potato cookie butter (no churn) ice cream were very easy to make and turned out better than I imagined. This may sound biased, but these were probably the best ice cream sandwiches I treated to myself to. The cookies were perfectly soft and flavored. The ice cream was not overly sweet and complimented the cookies perfectly. The ice cream sandwiches were even more magical as they were decorated with Kaleidoscope Sprinkles new fall Sprinkle Mix, Mellow Leaves from Heaven.

Definitely give both of these easy recipes a try this season. Both are great for indulging, cooking with kids in the kitchen and/ or impressing family/ friends.

Both recipes and step by step video can be found below.

1 pint (16 fl. oz.) of heavy cream, keep very cold

To make cookies:

Once ready to bake cookies, remove dough from refrigerator for at least 20-30 minutes before baking.

Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Using cookie scoop or ice cream scoop, place cookie dough onto sheets about 1.5-2 inches apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes until cookies are slightly golden and firm to touch. Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool completely to room temperature.
